Asmanex Twisthaler may be prescribed to help prevent asthmas attacks. The active ingredient, Mometasone is a corticosteroid medication that is breathed deep into your lungs where the relief is needed so you can breathe easily throughout the day. Asmanex Twisthaler can be prescribed to help prevent asthma attacks for children 12 years old to adults, but it does not work quickly to stop an asthma attack in progress. For those times when you need something that will work fast, ask your doctor about a fast-acting asthma medication like Albuterol. If this is your first time using Asmanex Twisthaler, it can take up to two weeks or more before you will benefit fully from asthma stability.
Mometasone is a corticosteroid that demonstrates potent anti inflammatory action when inhaled as directed. It is absorbed into the cells of your lungs and airways and inhibits multiple types of cells and mediators that play a role in inflammation and your asthmatic response. The actions of Asmanex Twisthaler reduce the inflammation and the formation of excess mucus in your lungs and airways and allow you to breathe easy so you can enjoy being active without worry and have less sick days from work or school.
Asthma tends to run in the family. Air pollution may cause, aggravate, and promote an asthma attack. Asthma is more common in those dealing with allergies. When an asthma attack occurs, the airways leading to your lungs become inflamed and swollen. This is an immune system reaction to a known or unknown trigger. Your airways impede the air flow and you cough, wheeze, and are short of breath with tightness in your chest. Asmanex Twisthaler helps to limit the amount of asthma attacks you have but it is not a cure.
Ask your doctor if Asmanex Twisthaler is safe to use if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have with your doctor and list any OTC and Rx medications you currently take or use, including herbal preparations and dietary or vitamin supplements, to be certain of any adverse interactions with Asmanex Twisthaler.
Until you know how Asmanex Twisthaler will affect you, avoid driving or any activity that may be unsafe if you are not totally alert and clear headed. After each use of Asmanex Twisthaler, rinse out your mouth to reduce your risk of a yeast infection with Candida albicans. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share any meds prescribed to you with others. As a corticosteroid, Mometasone suppresses your immune system so try to avoid crowded areas where germs are spread easily.
